For a good few years now my absolute go-to, never-let-me-down mascara has to be the Essen Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara. As a beauty-a-holic and a beauty blogger I have tried out a LOT of mascaras, costing from £1 up to £30plus and I still use this. In fact I once found them half price and bought 12 as back-ups as I thought they were being discontinued due to them being half price, but thank heavens they haven’t been.
My eyelashes are short, straight, fair and fine and so it takes a special mascara to be able to make them look decent, but Essence’s Lash Princess False Lash Effect Mascara does just that! I do use it alongside other mascaras when I am wanting a big impact lash effect, but however many others I try, none come close to this one.
There are actually three mascaras in the Essence Lash Princess range but because I was always so stuck on this one, I never actually tried the other two, so I thought I would give them a whirl to see how they compare. The other two are the Essence Lash Princess Volume Mascara, and the Essence Lash Princess Sculpted Volume Mascara. The other amazing thing about these mascaras is that they are super cheap and affordable ranging between £3-£3.30 - where else can you get value like that?!
So, I shall start with my well-established favourite, the False Lash Effect Mascara. This mascara has a special, conic shaped fibre brush which provides the lashes with length, dramatic volume and a false-lash effect. I honestly could rave about this mascara all day long. However, as I have just done so above, I want to discuss more about the other two.
Moving on to the Essence Lash Princess Volume Mascara, this one comes in similar ever-so-cute packaging, with a hint of coral and has a specially-shaped cobra-head wand, which covers each individual lash to create dramatic volume and a sweeping look for intense fluttering lashes. I find that this mascara gives the same fabulous coverage, length and volume as the False Lash Effect Mascara, but as mentioned, a prettier, fluttery look rather than a bold false lash effect. This will be perfect for everyday wear.
Finally, we have the Essence Lash Princess Sculpted Volume Mascara, which is decorated with lilac hues and gives the lashes more dramatic volume as well as defining them for a fan effect. It has a special tapered brush to sculpt the lashes, and I actually think this might overtake my love of the False Effect Mascara. It instantly adds volume and makes my lashes curl rather than go straight down like they normally do. At just £3, this is the cheapest of the trio, but definitely worth every penny and more.
The Essence Lash Princess Mascaras are available instore and online at Wilko.
